After a whirlwind trip to Miami for a conference, I met up with my sweet boy after work. Waking up at 5 am to provide enough time to drop off the rental car and navigate the airport, I was too exhausted to think about what to cook for dinner. Instead, we headed to Rustico on the way home. I haven't been there for ages. We were fortunate to be sat relatively quickly. That, and the responsive server were the highlights of the meal.
Pizza with sausage, red pepper and roasted mushrooms.
Crust was very thin, perhaps overcooked. The toppings were tasty but the cardboard texture and taste of the crust left me underwhelmed.
Braised Pork Shank
This was way overcooked. Even with the sharp knife, it was difficult to cut through. After attracting the notice of our server, he swiftly remedied the overcooked pork without hassle. He brought out another plate, the meat fell off the bone and was very good.
We won't be rushing back anytime soon for a meal, but the quality of the service and the extensive beer selection are tempting to give another shot in the future.
